Abrams gained national attention in 2018 losing a narrow Governor’s race to Brian Kemp. After accusations of voter suppression, she started the voting rights non-profit organization, Fair Fight Action.

The two-time New York Times best-selling author (Our Time is Now and Lead from the Outside) also starred in the documentary All In: The Fight For Democracy, examining issues of voter suppression in America. She was also recently awarded the inaugural Social Justice Impact Award from the NAACP Image Awards in 2021.
